SANTA CLARA, California -- A woman in California put Costco's generous return policy to the test this week, returning her dead Christmas tree for a full refund.

According to an article on The Sun Online, the woman was spotted inside a Costco in Santa Clara, California on January 4th. Another shopper waiting in line behind her said she was returning the tree ‘because it is dead.'

The Sun reports the shopper, who posted a photo of the return on Facebook, said the woman did receive her money back after Costco employees questioned her, verified the purchase on account, and she was "shamed to a small degree."

The Facebook post prompted many not-so-complimentary comments from users.
